Aw, Alec Baldwin went on Piers Morgan and talked all about his newish girlfriend, and did a British accent and wants to have more kids.
Baldwin- who caught some ire for leaving his daughter an angry voicemail a few years back- is dad to one kid, 16-year-old Ireland with actress Kim Basinger. And while that relationship went very sour, Baldwin told Morgan that he has hope again that he will be able to pull off the “happily coupled” thing. Baldwin says that before meeting his girlfriend- the two decades younger yoga teacher Hilaria Thomas- he was pretty convinced he was going to die one of those New York deaths with little to comfort him besides social networks and Zynga. He tells Morgan:
“After I got divorced, I dated people and I had one girlfriend for several years… and right before I met Hilaria… I did lay in my bed and say, ‘This is it. I’m gonna be alone for the rest of my life, I’m gonna die alone in this apartment in this bed, I’ll have my friends, I’ll have Twitter, I’ll have Words with Friends, I’ll have my New Yorker subscription… I’ll have my quiet, unhappy life’. I walked into a restaurant… and I met this woman who is probably one of the greatest people I’ve ever met in my life.”
However, soon after revealing his new relationship status, Baldwin flipped the tables on the question-asker, grilling Morgan (in a British accent, no less) about whether he’d ever been in love. Baldwin, doing his Piers impression, asked:
“I must ask you Piers, have you even been properly in love? I was asked by your staff to pose this very question.”
Piers confirmed that they had, and managed to wrest control of the interview again. On the subject of kids, Baldwin said that to have more- “that would be heaven, that would be fantastic.” Do you think it’s cool Alec Baldwin has found love again?
